“The locks were still on as if nothing had happened” when electoral officers went to the office, Joy News Northern regional correspondent Matina Bugri reported.

A technician with the EC, Moses Tibillah confirmed that the wire mesh and three louvre blades in the window behind the office had been removed

He explained that the computers and biometric verification devices containing data gathered on the last day of the registration exercise on Sunday were all missing.
